Just bought the game, wondering which is the best populated server to play on?
Highest population doesn't matter. Most servers are pretty well populated. I'm on Kujata, if you happen to choose it, let me know so I can help you get started.
To be the best, you must help each other become the best.FFXI Character: SatimasuFFXI Server: ValeforFFXIV Character: Tamorae Fonteil
It's purely your own personal preference.

Unless you have someone you'd like to play with specifically, it doesn't matter all that much. And if it does, and you don't feel like starting over, you can change servers for a fee.
